Subject: "Terror By Night" Another Great Sherlock Holmes Mystery
Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are in great form for this Sherlock Holmes mystery. The setting takes place mainly on a train, the plot and pacing is good, and it is neatly wrapped up at the end. For those who like Sherlock Holmes they may want to venture into the radio counterpart on the Internet Archive staring, for the most part, the two excellent actors in this movie. Enjoy!

Subject: Parden me, boy, is that the Edinburgh choo choo?
This has the smallest budget of all the Universal Sherlock Holmes films, yet it is one of the best. Almost all the action takes place on the night train to Edinburgh, where a young man is mysteriously murdered in a locked day-coach compartment and a fabulous diamond stolen. The list of possible suspects is small, but solving this one won't be easy because the murderer must be caught and the gem recovered before the train reaches its destination. Inspector Lestrade (Dennis Hoey) is onboard, and as usual no help at all. The consummate professionals Rathbone and Bruce are as outstanding as ever. Fast-paced with a tight script, this nifty little mystery fills up every one of its fifty-nine minutes without a second wasted.
